Thank you a lot for your last letter. It was a nice surprise to hear from you. I'm sorry I haven't written to you earlier but I had to organise some things concerning my trip.
As you probably remember I've always wanted to visit some unusual places. And now, at last, off I went! However, you'd never guess where I've chosen to spend my holiday. Well, it's Antarctica! You would never think of it, would you? I'm so excited about the whole event!
The people I travel with are incredible. They know every path in the snow by heart and they are very helpful. Moreover, they share their knowledge and experience with me. Would you believe that here everything is different? You even need to set your tent in a special way. It's all very challenging. Tomorrow we plan to move further north, so I will not be able to stay in touch for a while.
Finally, I'd like to meet you when I get back. Hope you are enjoying your holiday. Write back soon.
